About the Talk

India has the unique privilege of being home to not one but three UNESCO World Heritage Sites connected to the railways. What lies unacknowledged is the fact that an entire nation lies charted with railway lines and the memory of a kinetic nation produced by, for and despite the locomotive. During this Baithak, we will talk about how we can define the territory of this complex and all-encompassing heritage. What is the nature of heritage associated with the railways in the subcontinent? What are the challenges faced by the custodians of this heritage and what is the way forward in the preservation and interpretation of this industrial heritage? This Baithak will bring together experts and enthusiasts of railway heritage in India, such as COMOS, TICCIH, Rail Enthusiasts’ Society, Indian Railways, Indian Steam Railways Society and UNESCO.
